So what are they refunding? The purchase price of people who bought it? Or the preorders for the additional volumes?

Preordering is a bad practise.

News Comments > Obsidian Game Announcement Coming

I have started F4 and so far.. it's felt a bit like an id software game to be honest.. Sometimes advancing through the ruins it felt a bit like being in Rage lol. Don't get me wrong it makes some of the indoor levels more interesting than what Bethesda had created in the past.
But what I want is getting carried by all those stories from the post apocalyptic world. It's getting interesting with those stories related to the institute. The whole base building and management thing hasn't proved very exciting so far.
Kinda miss the Sunset Salsaparilla so far..

jacobvandy wrote on What difference does it make to be rid of the extraneous 1-100 values, when all that mattered before was the 4-5 breakpoints we're left with now anyway? [/quote:

I totally agree... Fallout 3 lockpicking allowed you to open a harder lock at a certain breakpoint, Until you reached that point all the extra skill point spent into it were useless. that would allow for investing in several skills at once. I don't know about weapon skills though, did they have breakpoints or bonuses per extra skill level?

My only pet peeves is that it reduces freedom a bit ( "Build the player that you want!" says the ad) In the previous games you could develop the skills without getting the perks linked to them. The positive point is that sometimes the skills and the points would sometimes collide, like for instance a stealth bonus that would make raising the stealth skill useless so it should be more streamlined now, more coherent.

Think about Skyrim.. that's the worse case, you could develop your skill in picking locks but unless you would get the perks your new skill levels wouldn't allow you to pick harder locks.

With this system I know you get a perk point every level, I just hope they are more generous this time around.
Another advantage of this system, a perk like haggling doesn't take as much point as a skill more vital to your survival like weapon skills

Carlberg is a bit too mundane for a post-apocalyptic setting.. I would love to drink a real life nuka-cola.. without the radiations of course.

it seems Disney is less protective with its franchises than Lucas used to be. Hard to believe a sci-fi video game with Rebel or Empire in its name not being sued!

It reminds me of the number of different guns they had avertised for Borderlands.
Was annoying for people like me who's bad at making choices choosing which gun to ditch or to sell.
Enjoyed it though...
Not like Borderlands 2. Been trying this game lately and it's a bit disappointing. I kinda feel like I am getting killed all the time even when I am engaging only two bad guys. Kinda feel like having to reload every two seconds and getting out of ammo every two minutes. Not fun!

The fact that most PC users never got to try it explains why people are so much over it. And that it should be so bad why it never made it to PC.

Jennifer Lawrence is 22?? What? (checks Wikipedia, she is 25)

Why would she give her wrong age in an interview?...wtf??

Welcome to Hollywood. I suspect it's something that happens a lot, as many female actresses have complained about being told they're "too old" for a given role.


I think a lot of women lie about their age in general, they just don't have an opportunity to do it in an interview. That or the interview is three years old :p.

Witcher 2 is still on for sale on steam. Very cheap but anyhow it probably produced revenue for the last few years. Might even produce additional revenue if newcomers who have finished Witcher 3 are curious about Witcher 2.

I suppose SnapMap uses models rather than brushes. Will be really easy to add new content.

Actually that vid isn't new. I remember watching it around quakecon. I was quite interested in that video about tech 6, but the specifics of the engine are quite vague though. Quite amazed by the statement "the best tech team we've ever had". John Carmack will appreciate that :p.

Player-requested features? Are they going to introduce charismatic characters? I mean.. I just tried DA:I after weeks of playing Witcher 3 for a change. Jee the characters felt just like saturday morning cartoon characters. Not to mention that options to customize the player character had me chose between him looking like some effeminate top model or like a diformed hunchback. I had to reroll him in an attempt to add manliness. Couldn't go with the pointy oversized faces. Jee I want a guy that looks badass not some Half orc. Kinda felt like they were catering to the crowd that enjoys teenage shows like Vampire Diaries. Jee I couldn't get past this quest to go on top of that mountain to close a gate or whathaveya. Funny I didn't get that feeling when I played Origins. The options to chose on creation didn't satisfy me either. I think i'll be better off playing PPOE. Is DA:I as bad as that first impression it gave me?
